Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice/Saga

Post by powerarmour »



Bought this on offer as I was intrigued by the Norse mythos/mental health pitch, plus all those top reviews can't be wrong surely?

They're not luckily, it's a suitably atmospheric experience (and yes you do need regular Headphones with any virtualisation disabled for the best binaural sound experience) and it plays like a kind of Dear Esther meets Where's Wally (or Waldo) with some fun combat thrown in.
Unreal Engine 4 does the business for the visuals too and there really isn't much better around art wise, I also really like how they superimpose FMV actors into some of the scenes, it works incredibly well. :sweet:

Unfortunately I can't seem to screen grab the Radeon performance overlay, but although GPU performance is unchanged, my overall CPU utilisation now with the Ryzen 7 2700 has dropped to ~10% (from ~60% with the i5-5675C), it seems this game in it's current state is quite well multi-threaded. :sweet:

Worth it for the audio alone. :sweet:
I can't praise enough how good the binaural audio is in this game, but there is a teaser here at this section of the video (obviously headphones are essential).
